Specialty Motors

Specialty Motors, Inc. (SMI) was established in 1971 to provide armature and field sets to leading companies such as KitchenAid and Whirlpool. Motor design and manufacturing followed shortly after, as SMI began producing several product lines for the U.S. military, as well as serving other industrial and commercial markets.

Today, Specialty Motors designs and manufactures custom fractional horsepower motors that are used in a wide range of applications including: pitching machines, treadmills, peristaltic medical pumps, buffers, polishers, grinders, and more. The company maintains an experienced and sophisticated engineering design and support team to serve its customers using AutoCAD design with electronic interface and rapid prototyping supported by a complete in house machine shop.
